Pritzker Hageman lawyers are representing over 40 patients who had epidural injections of steroid medication made by the New England Compounding Center (NECC), a compounding pharmacy licensed in Massachusetts. They have won several cases for meningitis clients, including over $6,000,o00 for meningitis wrongful death. They also won over $900,000 in a case against another compounding pharmacy.
To date, 10 people in Minnesota have CDC-confirmed cases of fungal meningitis. One of Fred’s Minnesota meningitis clients was featured in an article in The Guardian.
Below is an excerpt from the article in The Guardian:
Maccoux is now taking legal action against NECC and is being represented by Fred Pritzker, an attorney based in Minneapolis. Pritzker, who is representing about 40 of those affected by the health scandal, has described it as a example of “corporate irresponsibility abetted by regulatory failure”, and has called on Congress to set up a compensation fund for people injured and the families of those killed by the outbreak.
You can contact Fred and Ryan for a FREE consultation here regarding product liability and medical malpractice claims against NECC, a clinic and others. They are representing people diagnosed with meningitis and patients who had spinal taps to test for meningitis but do not have the spinal fungal infection. They have filed one lawsuit and anticipate filing many more in the near future.
The Minnesota clinics that received the implicated NECC spinal injection drugs are Medical Advanced Pain Specialists (MAPS) in Edina, Fridley, Shakopee and Maple Grove, and the Minnesota Surgery Center (MSC) in Edina and Maple Grove.
